CARL EDWARDS -- No. 99 Office Depot Ford Fusion (Qualified 2nd)

"That was a good lap for us. I can't thank my guys enough. I went out in the Busch car and I screwed it up pretty bad and we finished 12th or something, so I said I was just going to do everything I could to not get too much. Hopefully, it stays for a top five or something. That would be a great starting spot for us. This place, I think with these cars, track position and pit selection are gonna be important."

ARE YOU HAPPY?

"That was a good run. That's a great big step for us and hopefully it holds up for a top four or top five and have a good race. It's so much fun when it's going well and so frustrating when it's not, so, hopefully it's a good start."

WILL IT BE HARDER TO PASS WITH THESE CARS?

"I think with the car of tomorrow it's gonna be a little bit tougher to pass. It was for me at Phoenix, so for us this qualifying was huge because we'll get to start up front."
